The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro is one of the three new smartphones recently launched in France by the Chinese brand. This one is perceived as the standard-bearer of the mid-range, with a more muscular technical sheet than the other two. Pre-orders have just started for a release scheduled for the month of March.
We vote for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro as the best value for money of 2021, and there is no doubt that his successor will do the same. Xiaomi has just formalized its Redmi Note 11 Pro, an obviously better model than the Note 11/11S. If these last two are already available for purchase with a launch promotion, the Pro model enters the pre-order phase for an estimated delivery during the month of March 2022. The 5G version of this mid-range smartphone it will come later in the year.

The new mid-range master
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro has the titanic task of succeeding the smartphone with the best value for money in 2021, but given its technical sheet, nothing will happen. It generally offers the same design as its predecessor, but the slices are very reminiscent of the contours of an iPhone with this layer of aluminum surrounding the phone. The dimensions are quite similar compared to the Note 10 Pro, with the same screen characteristics, namely 6.67 inches, AMOLED technology, Full HD + definition and refresh rate at 120 Hz. Touch sampling for better capacity touch response is again at 360 Hz (compared to 180 Hz of Note 11 and Note 11S) and the weight of the smartphone exceeds 200 grams.
It retains the 108-megapixel main sensor made by Samsung, with the addition of an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle, a 2-megapixel macro and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. As in the previous model, this composition should guarantee good versatility and good quality shots, where even night shots will still be quite effective. As for the battery, it is 5,000 mAh, which is 20 mAh less than in the Redmi Note 10 Pro, but the autonomy should be quite similar, around 2 days if the use is moderate. The big change with the 11 Pro is the supplied power supply which is now 67W to get percentages back quickly. The Chinese brand announces between 30 and 40 minutes to reach 100%.
In terms of performance, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro is changing tone and this year the manufacturer has opted for a MediaTek processor instead of Qualcomm for its new mid-range smartphone. This is the Helio G96 supported by 6 or 8 GB of RAM depending on the chosen model, the same chip as that of the Redmi Note 11S. Power, on the other hand, should be more or less similar to the Snapdragon 732G in last year’s Note 10 Pro. That said, the user experience will be perfectly smooth under MIUI 13 running Android 11 (Android 12 will come later) and most 3D games will run in good graphical condition.
